I'm a non-techy newbie. I have a .json file relating to my presale Ether purchase which I am unable to access.

I downloaded the Ethereum wallet 0-7-6 for Mac, but unfortunately I only have Mac OS X 10.7.5 and I received a message saying the application needs Mac OS X 10.9 or later.

Is there any alternative wallet that I can use to access my presale Ether that would be compatible with Mac OS X 10.7.5?



You can use one of the online wallets to transfer your presale Ether to myetherwallet.com

there are also more options available, some of them are listed here: weusecoins.com/ethereum-wallets/

  • Thanks Shayan. I've done the transfer using myetherwallet. It took me a while to realise that I didn't need to create a new wallet, but that I could open the original .json file using their system. I was also almost terrified to do anything in light of the recent phishing attacks. All sorted now. Jul 6 '16 at 13:17
  • Happy to help out, you could also download their source code and run it locally. when in doubt use Open source :)
